Question about Canon PowerShot A640 Digital Camera
I have had this camera for about 2 years, no problems until about a month ago. When I noticed the images on the LCD screen where very dark and underexposed. Also when viewing the pictures the same issue. Now at times the screen will be completely dark and no image will show after taking picture. I have changed the batteries, CF card no change. When looking at the histogram on the camera it shows the photos are under exposed. I took it to Pictureline and was told that this was just typical of this type of camera, but I think if it was typical it would have been happening all along. Just need to know how to fix or if I should send it into Cannon to be fixed. I am having the same issue. Did you ever find the solution? When in auto mode, if I take a photo in a non bright room the image comes out blue/black. When I take a photo in a well lit room it is fine. The flash is working fine. It just happened from one photo to the next - weird.
I have started noticing exact same problem on my 2 year old S3 IS since about couple of months ago... By the way, Canon CCD advisory notice does not apply to S3 (not even S2, it ended with S1). I am hearing a lot about IRIS/Shutter getting stuck completely on Canon S-series cameras. I am wondering if this is a variant of that problem, where it is stuck but is partially open, which means images will be underexposed in all conditions except when in brightly lit conditions.
